Happy Summer Break! I hope each of you have a sensational summer! Thank you so much for a great 2019-2020 school. I look forward to seeing everyone in the fall! 

​​My name is Amanda McKenna and this is my 14th year in education.  This will be my first year at Johnston County’s Early College Academy and I am truly excited to be apart of the PRIDE. At the Early College Academy, students are given opportunities to experience Problem Based Learning (PBL). PBL is a learning style where students learn through hands on activities, inquisitive thinking, and application-based projects. 

​Science has always been the subject I truly loved to explore and understand in and out of the classroom. I received a Bachelor of Science in Rehabilitation Studies and a Master’s of Arts in Teaching Science from East Carolina University (GO PIRATES). This semester, I will be teaching Biology. Biology is the study of life or living matter in all its forms and phenomena, especially with reference to origin, growth, reproduction, structure, and behavior. This course is an inquiry based science class in which, students will study biochemistry, cells, genetics, evolution and classification, ecology, and the diversity of life. I am looking forward to a great semester at ECA!​​My name is Amanda McKenna and this is my 14th year in education.  This will be my first year at Johnston County’s Early College Academy and I am truly excited to be apart of the PRIDE.
